Water Consciousness H2O Nourish Your Body, Protect Our Earth written by Charisse Marei

BY CHARISSE MAREI

Did you know, the earth contains 326,000,000,000,000,000,000 gallons of water? That’s 326 million trillion gallons! Of that, 96.5 percent is saline (saltwater – undrinkable). Two percent is frozen. Surprisingly, less than one percent is fresh and drinkable.

Water awareness is now a growing phenomenon

As the annual global population continues to increase at rapid speed, access to safe drinkable water for many is becoming a luxury or it’s just unavailable. As Americans, most of us are blessed to have access to clean water and we can choose to be stewards of this life-giving resource. It’s essential to consciously conserve water, protect our Earth, and nourish our bodies all at the same time. 

Water consciousness begins with us

It’s hard to believe that simple actions we take as individuals can have an enormous impact, but the cumulative impact of our actions, very well can. Choosing to be stewards of this shared global effort will nourish us and ensure this vital natural resource is available for generations to come.

As we consciously act on how, why, and when to use water, we unite as part of the solution and not the problem.

Don’t Throw Away – REuse

Not all water bottles are created equal. Throwaway plastic water bottles are a growing global phenomenon with a negative impact on our natural resources, health, flying feathered friends, and life within our waters.

Here are the 5 biggest reasons to ditch those throw away bottles and opt for REusable ones instead: 

01- Plastic Pollutes our Earth

Plastic bottles are not biodegradable. In North America alone,+\-38 billion plastic water bottles go into landfills, where they break down into teeny-tiny micro-plastic pieces leaching out harmful chemicals.

And by the way, fish eat micro-plastics, and we eat fish.

02- Plastic Harms the Atmosphere

During manufacturing (life) and incineration (death), particulates enter the atmosphere creating pollution and impacting (life after death).

Garbage patches are rapidly mounting in ocean gyres and seas.around the globe. Impacts life. Takes life.

04- Plastic Threatens Marine Life

The 5 Gyres Institute acknowledges, “More than600 species are endangered or killed by marine plastic pollution.”

05- Plastic is Harmful to Health

What’s in your throwaway bottled water? Where was it mined? Tested? Did it receive exposure to heat during transportation and storage? Because you don’t ever want to drink water that has been heating in your car or anywhere else. Plasticswhen heated have been shown to leach unwanted compounds into the water. Is bottled water actually purer than your filtered tap water? Is it really a sustainable practice to be buying water transported across the world in plastic? 

The subject of plastics’ harmful effects on health is quite an extensive Watch The Story of Bottled Water, presented by The Story of Stuff. Itentertainingly explains the ugly truth about bottled water and its negative impact on our earth.
